In Cat & Co., you're worried more about the company than the cat, trying to keep track of everyone you see at the animal party.
Each player starts with a set of twelve animal cards in hand. On a turn, a player shakes the ten animal dice in the box, lifts the lid for a brief time, then covers the dice once again. Starting with the dice shaker, players place one card from their hand into a row, trying to play cards to match which animals have shown up at the party. If you can't remember or don't think your cards match the dice, you can pass.
Once all players have passed, remove the lid once again and place dice one by one on the cards in order. If a player played a card that doesn't match a die, they receive a cat token worth -1 points. All cards that match the dice are removed from the game; all cards that collected cat tokens are returned to the hands of the appropriate players.
Keep playing rounds until someone has no cards left in hand or someone has collected at least three cat tokens. Each card left in hand is worth -1 point, and whoever has the best score wins.
